A Woody is made only of aventurine and clear glass, twisted so that it looks like a wood grain pattern with the aventurine adding lots of sparkle.
Woodies range in size from peewee to 1-5/8 inch or maybe a little larger. Price runs $10 for a peewee, $15-$20 for a 5/8" Woody, and $30 up to about $120 for larger Woodies.
They will vary a little in color depending on the aventurine used. Woodies also sometimes show a little green in between the grain as you can see in the photo below.
Some of my later Woodies have a little colored glass mixed in so that it just shows between the aventurine layers. These are known as "Petrified Woodies."
